RUSSIA IS STILL GOG – THE US IS STILL THE DAUGHTER OF BABYLON

There have been so many events the past 2-3 years in geopolitics. But the major players remain the major players.  The Middle East continues to burn hot.  And the threat of greater, large-scale conflicts continues to mount.

I haven’t written much in the past year or so about the threat of a Russian nuclear attack on the United States.  But my view hasn’t changed since I wrote, The Next Great War in the Middle East in 2016.  Donald Trump hasn’t altered the nature of the US.  It is still the evil empire dominating third world countries, economics, and stimulating military conflict.  Russia has more motivation now to respond to the US foreign policy inasmuch as hardly anything has changed.  Consider John Bolton as National Security Advisor and his contradiction of President Trump on whether we should pull our troops out of Syria.  The Neo-Cons are still in control of foreign policy. And the Democrats are just as much “Neo-Cons” as Republicans. Think about it.

Here is a nice review of The Next Great War in the Middle East.  I’d encourage you to get the book and read it.  It remains the most pertinent study “how we got to where we are” in Syria and why Russia continues to loom as Gog. The price is right.  The insight is right too.
